Happy August! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I am not surprised of the best clips release since its their 20th anniversary, probably gonna add this to my collection.
Arashi isn’t done yet with new music releases. Following their 20th anniversary album last June, Arashi is slated to release their newest single “BRAVE” on September 11. The song is used as image song for NTV’s broadcast of the “Rugby World Cup 2019 Japan Tournament”.
Featuring Sakurai’s rap, this is also the first single from Arashi to be released in a Blu ray disc. The single will only contain one song “BRAVE” and a 54 minute DVD/ Bluray content.
In addition, Arashi will be releasing their music video collection “5 × 20 All the BEST !! CLIPS 1999-2019” on October 16th. This is the second part of their “5×20” series. Similar with the best album, the MV collection will contain 63 MVs from their debut single “A ・ RA ・ SHI” to “Kimi no Uta” released in 2018. The first limited edition will come with a bonus disc containing MVs of album songs and coupling songs.

This was a complete blindside, I was pretty surprise by this unexpected announcement. However, I wasn’t in denial nor shock as the SMAP break-up, which even the slightest idea would have been rejected. I vented for days to my friends who thought I was crazy. LOL
I was pretty calm for this. Now, all I have for my beloved Arashi is understanding and support. ❤ ❤ They deserve to take a break as they have been working since their teens. Their tight-knit-ness (is that even a word?) is evident during their explanation on how thorough their discussions were for this conclusion. I am glad that it was collaborative and Arashi is all for one and one for all. They can come back whenever they are ready (hopefully get married and with have families), I will wait for them forever. I am just very happy to have been a part of this incredible Arashian family.
Is everyone psyched about this?! I am super pumped up and cannot wait to see Oh-chan in action.
Johnny’s super group Arashi will be singing the theme song for the upcoming ninja film “Shinobi no Kuni”.
Arashi’s leader Satoshi Ohno is the leading man in the film, playing the role of “Mumon”. A lazy but very elite ninja who has gained much notoriety due to his skills. One day Mumon takes takes a job that requires him to kill a ninja from another family, what he doesn’t know is that his actions lead to a bloody battle between Oda Nobunaga’s army and the ninja of the Iga Province, who Mumon belongs to.
Supporting cast include Satomi Ishihara who will be playing Mumon’s wife Okuni. Ryohei Suzuki, Yusuke Ieyasu, and Hey! Say! JUMP’s Chinen Yuri round out the rest of the main cast.
The theme song titled “Tsunagu” will be Arashi’s 52nd single overall. It will be released in the standard CD only and limited edition CD+DVD versions. The high energy song features prominent electric guitars and shamisen, perfectly melding the two styles of past and present. The last time Arashi sang a movie theme song was for the 2013 hit “Platinum Data”. With such an all star cast and the power of Arashi behind the film “Shinobi no Kuni” will no doubt be one of Japan’s biggest hits of the summer.
“Tsunagu” will be released on June 28th, 2017 while “Shinobi no Kuni” hits theaters on July 1st.
Arashi dropped their newest album “Are You Happy?” last October 26. In the album, the group starts from the basic universal joy of listening to music and presenting songs that make the listener feel happy.
Check out the music video for the lead song “Don’t You Get It?”, which features the members just being all kinds of goofy and ridiculous. What do you think of this latest release from Arashi?
Absolutely agree, they are still so adorable and dorky, especially Oh-chan. Love the upbeat and catching tune, their casual clothing and the doggies. XD Just cannot wait to get their Are you Happy? album in the mail.
